Malabsorption of certain foods (e.g. lactose) has been proposed as a cause of irritable bowel syndrome in adults and children. Recently, a diet that lowers intake of a combination of foods has been found to be effective in adults with IBS identified with fructose malabsorption. The purpose of this study is to determine whether a restricted fermentable substrate diet is effective in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome in children.
